How do I know if the cost of construction work exceeds $250,000? 

The cost of work can be determined in a number of ways:

  • based on the cost of work as assessed for the purposes of approval fees under the Environmental Planning Act 1979 or, if this is not done,
  • the contract price for carrying out the work or, if there is no contract price,
  • the value of the work carried out.

See clause 211 of the OHS Regulation 2001.
